High Speed tire balancing. What will this acheive?

Morning! I'm about to get my TJ tires high-speed balanced. What is the advantage compared to regular balancing machine? I'm at a shop that does transport tires, and they have highspeed balancer.

Not sure what it would do for off road tires. I have a 350z and bought some yokohamas a while back. I had them balanced by the shop and while driving home they seemed unbalanced as soon as I passed about 83mph. Anything under that and they were fine. I went back to the shop told them of the issue and they did a highspeed balance for a little extra and now the car is stable up to max speed.

The "road force" balancing does a better job with larger tires.

Solved!!!!

Finally, the last remaining steering shimmy is gone!!! It turns out the last place that balanced the 31's only did a static balance. I didn't know the difference. Now after being balanced on a highspeed, staticly; the Jeep rides beautifully now. There is no shaking in the steering at any speed, any legal speed !

Did discover though that one of the tires cannot be balanced. The Tech said it was a bad tire, so its on the back. I drove it on the highway, and although one tire is out of round, and unbalanced I couldn't feel anything in the steering wheel OR in the seat.

If it does get bad again, I'll have to replace the two rear tires. Shame I went with expensive rubber though.

Good Year Silent Armor Wranglers arn't cheap, but oh well. I got them second hand so I don't even have the receipt.
